When we first saw discovered this amazing technology, we instantly wondered why no one has come up with a sunlight transport device before. The technology has been around for awhile, and the idea is so fabulous, you would think we would all have these in our homes by now. Swedish company Parans has developed a system of rooftop solar panels that collect sunlight and then transport it via fiber optic cables to illuminate light-deprived rooms inside a house.
The receiver follows the sun over the day to collect its light. Specially designed optical lenses capture and concentrate the optimal amount of sunlight into the Parans cable for immediate transfer to the inside of the building. Our system transports the precious sunlight to indoor spaces that would otherwise be impossible to reach.
The intelligent Parans system makes the installation simple, as it comes pre-programmed from the factory. On site the unit is fastened, cables are ducted to the inside luminaires, roof and walls are resealed and the system is ready to be powered. Installation is rather simple and the steps are comparable to installing a satellite dish, but always read the Installation Manual before installing the products!
To each Parans receiver, six solar cables are attached. There are four standard lengths at 5, 10, 15 or 20 m – meaning that light can be brought two, three, even four floors down. The cables have very good ability to transport light while retaining the full spectrum of sunlight. The cables are thin and flexible, and can transport light both vertically and horisontally, occupying very little space.
